More than 300,000 public transport vouchers worth S$15 million disbursed to low-income householdsDec 18, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
The vouchers were given out under the extended 2019 Public Transport Vouchers Exercise since its commencement on Nov 11 last year, said MOT and PA in a news release.
This includes the first tranche of public transport vouchers that were directly disbursed to low-income households under the Ministry of Social and Family Development's ComCare short-to-medium-term assistance and long-term assistance schemes.
Eligible households can continue to apply for the public transport vouchers until Jan 31 and all disbursed vouchers must be redeemed by Jun 30 next year.
The release added that the Citizens' Consultative Committees will also assess and help deserving cases who marginally miss the eligibility criteria or provide additional public transport vouchers to households who may need more help.
